Okay to eat old ricotta?

I have an opened container of ricotta that's been sitting in the fridge for a few weeks. There are no signs of mold, and it's still before the expiration date. The note on the container says to eat the cheese within 3-5 days of opening it.

I'm wondering if it's okay to eat. I plan on cooking it rather than eating it fresh. I have some leftover marinara sauce that I made in the freezer and want to mix it with some penne and shredded mozzarella and bake it.

Think it's safe?
